The New Year has started with a monstrosity of a budget deal, one that proves that neither political party, Democrats or Republicans, is really serious about controlling the growth of big government.
But soap opera dramatics about fiscal "cliffs" and sequestration shouldnt deflect from where President Obama is really taking this country. Consider this story from the Wall Street Journal a few days before Christmas:
Thousands of people in several Argentine cities ransacked supermarkets for a second day in the latest challenge to President Chistina Kirchner, who is struggling to revive a weak economy...In the central city Rosario, two people were killed during the incidents and 137 people arrested.
The violence puts Mrs. Kirchner in a difficult position as the poor are [her] core constituents...Her government spends billions of dollars a year to help low income families, including free health care...[Yet] Argentine activists who claim to represent the poor traditionally block access to supermarkets in the month of December to demand free food and other items...The latest events were some of the worst acts of looting and vandalism in years.... Local media showed dozens of men, women, and children hauling away televisions, refrigerators, and food.
Some have said my warnings about a coming civil war between makers and takers are exaggerated. Its true that Argentinas politicians have been waging class warfare since Juan and Eva Peronand they arent fazed when it turns bloody. Obama and the Democrats are relative newcomers to the game. But Argentina reveals who really suffers when those who create a nations wealth get mugged by those who spend itas just happened this week in Washington.

But a Civil war is when both sides attempt to take over the central government I dont think would be the case here, this case would be more akin to divorce or better yet the removal of a leeches.
The Confederacy didnt really want to run the whole country They just wanted to separated from the rest of the states.
I prefer the term War of Feral Aggression myself.
Ya’ just have to understand a man back then... even though the government took it out of his paycheck all that time.. he considered standing in that line and drawing that check, ‘welfare’, in some fashion. They were taught to work for a living.
Where my free healthcare at?
Wars are fought and won by the determined. Only 30% of American’s supported our War of Independence. Many of the rest went to Canada.
Yeah, but I feel guilty that I'm starting to become eager to dish it out, LOL.
Working for a living is good, but the belief that you are not entitled to money you paid in is nothing more than the slave mentality.
But that’s how wars, especially civil wars, work...
Surely you jest.
Soros will be exempt.
Obama will be exempt.
Pelosi will be exempt.
Reid will be exempt.
Need I continue?
IMHO a constitutional convention is the last thing we would want.
For one example - Do you think something like the 2nd ammendment would survive a rewrite of the constitution when we have an electorate dumb enough to elect Obama twice? When we have federal, state and local governments rushing to use the reaction to the recent school shooting to pass more gun control laws?
Imagine what a new constitution written and approved by our current moocher, politically correct culture would look like,
Oh no, no constitutional convention, no sir. Not with the current make-up of the country and states. A new Constitution would read like a thousand-page-long transcript of Occupy Wall Street protest speeches and would completely and perfectly invert “rights” and “wants” just for starters.
You might want to look at the most extreme conservative actions ever taken. Singapore’s government is the most extreme conservative case that I know about. During the threat of communism they locked up the socialists and communist that were government officials. Ever since then the conservatives has been in control.
It is not that they don't think their government suffers from corruption. If you are fortunate enough to have a Singaporean friend, they will freely volunteer the excesses of their own government. But they are also willing to cut them some slack due to the bigger picture of keeping the Communist disease out.
The day will come that we will have to take similar drastic action if we wish our nation to recover from the terminal disease it has voted into office.
Git thee to thy health club...or go for a jog at the very least.;-)
Staying in as good a physical condition is absolutely mandatory and necessary to ride out this depression/obamageddon
“Do not give up your guns! NEVER!
The American citizenry is the best armed infantry in the world.
Once the guns get handed in, we are sitting ducks.
Expect no less than what the Jews got in the holocaust.”
You’re exactly right. There’s a reason why murderers and tyrants want you defenseless and unarmed. History is full of these examples—we have no exemptions to the lessons of history by virtue of being an American. It can and is happening here.
That’s what I said, the little guys always lose, besides, if we did have a civil war, it probably wouldn’t be in the near enough future for any of these people to be involved.
I say it bodes "Hope and Change".
